Here we are after almost four years of Democratic Labour Party government and no Integrity Legislation that the DLP promised. There’s no promised Freedom of Information law so the politicians can still do what they like and hide. No accountability. No conflict of interest rules so government officials can award contracts to their own companies. In the last four years several officials have done just that and continue in their employment.
This post was originally published in June 2008 when we decided that we had been fooled. LOOK AT THE COMMENTS by the DLP supporters calling us down to the lowest. We were called everything under the sun because that Integrity Legislation was right around the bend.
Where are these DLP apologists now? What do they have to say four years later?
The DLP lied to us. They are lying still, and so are the BLP. Who are you going to vote for? For me, my vote goes to “Anybody except the DLP and BLP”.

Hello BFP folks
Apologies for not getting back to you much sooner.
DLP leader David Thompson hosted a press conference today where he distributed the attached documents dealing with a proposed legal framework to promote accountability, transparency and accountability in public life and fight corruption.
The Ministerial Code takes effect immediately after a DLP government is elected. The Freedom of Information Act and Integrity legislation will be dealt with in the first 100 days in office.
Any questions, give me a call. If you were part of the traditional media, you would have been invited to the news conference where you could have asked whatever you wanted.
